Duramen by Bonsoir Paris

The Paris, France-based design team of Bonsoir Paris is made up of graphic designers, Rémy Clémente & Morgan Maccari. Along with their team they created Duramen, a series of sculptures, which began as wooden frames that are then reimagined into something indistinguishable. The sculptures create juxtaposition between the distorted nature of the designs themselves and their use of fine woods such as oak, fir, wenge, pear, and linden.
